Abstract:

Nearly 90 of the food consumed in FEMA Region VIII is warehoused within the region. The table below summarizes the source and magnitude of all shipments from warehouses to supermarkets within the region. Four of the six states in FEMA Region VIII Montana, North Dakota, Colorado and Utah are largely self-sufficient, warehousing between 79 to 99 of their food supplies within their own borders. The fifth state, South Dakota, which warehouses only 23 of its own food stocks, is heavily dependent on out-of-region warehouses for food shipments. Over half of South Dakotas food stocks come from Minnesota and Wisconsin in Region V, and Nebraska and Iowa in Region VII, highlighting a need for interregional coordination. The sixth state, Wyoming, has no major food warehouses, and is therefore totally dependent on out-of-state warehouses for its food supplies. Over 86 of Wyomings food stocks come from neighboring states within Region VIII Colorado, Montana and Utah so that interstate coordination will be essential under crisis relocation conditions.
